January Senate Approval Numbers from Survey USA
McConnell's approval is back under 50% and his disapproval upticks. Ugly numbers like that mean vulnerability, especially considering some of McConnell's worst numbers come among independent voters (a stunningly bad 34-58).
Roberts is really teasing us this month as his approval drops to 51% for the second time in three months. The early fundraising and hustle of Democratic candidate Greg Orman, coupled with Roberts' relatively sagging approval and many other negative marks, make Kansas look like the sleeper pick for a competitive Senate race.
Sessions enters the really safe zone.
Smith, like McConnell, sees his approval back under 50%, and Smith's disapproval is even back over 40%. Good times.
I'll once again stick with my November comment: "Harkin is looking just comfortable enough for me to say something snarky like, 'I hope Tom Latham does challenge Harkin, just to open up Latham's House seat!'"
